The 2013-2014 ACO season is all about our new motto: Embracing the Classics. Exploring the Future. Music Director Lois Ferrari believes that in order for classical music to truly realize its potential as a relevant and important art form it must embrace its future as much as its past. With this in mind, the ACO will show off a new look - a sleek, classy, modern take on concert black - and also experiment with programming that presents beloved classics alongside new and eclectic works, some of which might be considered off-beat, cross-genre, or even radical. We are also planning to present pre-concert talks by Dr. Ferrari as well as raffle off to the audience seats within the orchestra!
